In this review, we discuss the importance of two distinct sets of molecules, the secreted and/or surface and the nonsecreted antigens. The importance of the immune response against secreted and surface antigens is noted in the establishment of the infec- tion and we dissect the contribution of the nonsecreted antigens in the immunopathology associated with leishmaniasis, showing the importance of these panantigens during the course of the infection. The role of these two groups of antigens in the immune response observed during the infection is discussed. In the alimentary tract of the insect vector, the parasite exists ex- Leishmaniasis are parasitic diseases, caused by protozoan tracellularly as a flagellated motile form, the promastigote.

The most extensively studied leishmanial disease is dendritic cells may also harbour parasites [4]. These cells are responsible for the microbicidal cosal membranes giving origin to the mucocutaneous form and antigen-presenting functions however they serve as a of the disease.

This will ultimately lead to the ac- tivation of parasite-infected macrophages that, through the The secreted proteins have distinct functions during Leish- induction of effector molecules as nitrogen and oxygen re- mania infection.

Given the ancient evolutionary di- by interfering with the macrophagic microbicidal functions, vergence in Leishmania species, it is not surprising that the cytokine production, antigen presentation, and effector cells control of the different Leishmania driven diseases is related activation. This is achieved by repression of gene expression, to different immunological properties. This gression, in visceral leishmaniasis its importance has been macrophagic anergy enables the continuous multiplication ruled out [7]. The importance of some of these tibodies can also have a function in restricting the infection molecules in the establishment of the infection is well doc- when the parasite is exposed to the extracellular milieu [9]. However, until now, no effective vaccine resent the first challenge following entrance into the blood- against human leishmaniasis is available for clinical use [3]. Procyclic promastigotes are highly susceptible to Leishmania parasites inside their hosts do not behave complement action, unlike the metacyclic that can avoid inertly. Rather, the virulence related to their pathology seems complement mediated lysis [17]. This remarkable difference to be linked to an induced lack of immune response control. The importance of the secreted versus sion [24–26], and inhibition of phagosome-derived superox- nonsecreted antigens ide [27]. Nine of them were already described as excreted/secreted proteins in Leishmania or other species, 11 corresponded to known proteins but not characterized as secreted and the other 13 were completely new and unchar- acterized proteins [51]. This shows how little is known about the Leishmania secretome since only a few proteins are exten- sively characterized [52–56]. Chang et al suggest that these secreted/excreted proteins were evolutionarily selected becoming immunolog- ically “silent” [60]. The first steps of infection, while the parasite is still exposed to binding of gp63 to fibronectin receptors favours the parasite the extracellular environment. Furthermore, gp63 is an we present three distinct proteins: a cytosolic tryparedoxin endopeptidase with the potential to degrade immunoglobu- peroxidase of L.

Among those with sensation seeking as a personality trait, under-responsiveness to natural rewards and the need for greater stimulation has been suggested as motivation for drug taking. Personality traits have been documented to have a substantial heritable component. These models seek to explain addictive behaviour as pairings between a drug, drug-associated stimuli,e and the effect of taking a drug. Enduring changes to behaviour result from, or are influenced by, these interactions. Learning theory may be useful to understand how drug use becomes a facet of identity, and the implications this may have on treatment. In these instances, specific maladaptive traits may become reinforced over time, through the acquisition of drugs or perceived protection against negative experiences (see Chapter 8 for further information on the ‘addict identity’). The rewarding properties of drugs can include sensations of pleasure or relief of pain, tension or fatigue, as well as the ability to enable the user to escape negative feelings or emotions. Thus, the drug is used, it has rewarding effects, and this reinforces repeating this behaviour (ie it influences the continued use of the drugs). The use of psychoactive drugs causes activation to areas of the brain that are normally involved in motivation, such as the mesolimbic dopamine system (see Section 1. This causes the release of dopamine, the neurotransmitter released in response to any positive event or reward. Theories based on classical conditioning are often used to explain complex behaviours, such as drug craving. Research has demonstrated that after repeated drug administration, cues that precede drug ingestion, such as the sight of a needle and syringe, elicit craving for drugs. The drug is the unconditioned stimulus, and the drug-related high is the unconditioned response. The unconditioned response occurs in response to the unconditioned stimulus • the unconditioned response (heroin) is repeatedly paired with the neutral stimulus (syringe) • eventually, the neutral stimulus (syringe) alone is able to elicit a conditioned response, which is to crave using heroin. Operant conditioning The theory of operant conditioning (also known as instrumental learning/conditioning) has also been used to describe why people use drugs. If classical conditioning can be seen as learning through association, then operant conditioning can be seen as learning through reinforcement. Social learning theory extends the concept of operant conditioning as a basis for addiction, to learning through observation and communication. Social learning theory posits that individuals may be influenced in their decision to use drugs through observing role models in their environment and perceiving social norms in relation to drug use. Social learning theory is often used to describe the influence of peers and family on drug use. The role of the family’s attitudes towards drug use may play a role in this regard. Research has indicated that the family factors that contribute to individual differences in drug use include: • single-parent, or step families39-42 • substance use among family members43 • poor parent-child relationships44,45 • family conflict46 • poor parental supervision. These confounding variables may include social inequalities and the role of peer influence. Family structure A number of studies have suggested that family structure may play a role in individual development and functionality, including drug use. Research among 14 to 15 year olds in five European countries, including England, found that living with both biological parents was generally associated with reduced levels of drug use. Research among Scottish pupils reported that almost half of those who had used drugs had a family member that also used drugs. Research among British adolescents reported that those who thought their parents’ opinions were most important were less likely to regularly use drugs. Research has reported that families that lack parental monitoring, that have high levels of parent–child conflict, or where children are unwilling to disclose information to their parents, have higher levels of drug use. Positive family relationships and communication may guard against future use of drugs. Research has reported that adolescents who spend more time with their friends are at an increased risk of drug use. The relationship between peer groups and drug use is complex, and may function in different ways. Individuals often identify themselves as a member of a group on the basis of shared behaviours or beliefs. They may adopt behaviours to increase their sense of belonging to a group, or to become accepted as a group member. Alternatively, the high concordance between peer group and drug use may be a result of individuals seeking out peers with similar interests and behaviours to their own. Consequently, peer-group homogeneity may result from processes of selection into groups, or conformity to existing members of a group.
